Even though the mileage reaches over 1,200
miles (2,000 km), the clutch may take longer to
properly engage if the vehicle is mainly driven in
town at a low speed. NISSAN recommends
breaking in the clutch at a GT-R certified
NISSAN dealer



huh?

The R mode start function has been .
developed not only for controlling
the engine, transmission and VDC
system, but also the settings of the
suspension and tires. Therefore, any
modification of the vehicle may
disrupt the vehicle’s balance. This
will not only reduce the optimum
performance of the vehicle but may
also cause damage to powertrain
components, including the transmission.

If the R mode start function is used .
4 times consecutively, the function
may be disabled and cannot be
turned on to protect the vehicle
system. While the function is disabled, the warning light illuminates.
When the warning light illuminates,
perform cool down driving.
“Cool down” page GTR-12) (
When the warning light turns off,
the function can be used again.
The performance of start may vary .
depending on the amount of wheel
spin, or increase and decrease of
the engine output in response to the
outside temperature. (This vehicle
was set up according to the road
surface conditions of the straight
sections of the Sendai Highland
F8 Raceway course in Japan at 59
C).) 8 (15
VDC control automatically activate .
when driving on a slippery road
surface such when it is wet in order
to apply brakes or limit the engine
output for safety.
Frequent use of the R mode start .
function increases the load on the
powertrain related parts such as the
clutch and transmission compared
to normal driving. In particular, the
clutch will wear out more quickly

Great post NickTO.
But why is the wording about VDC Off invalidating the warranty still there?

I thought that was sorted YEARS ago and only damage deemed to have been incurred whilst VDC was off would be suspect?

Definitely looks like LC with VDC R is covered though as it is specifically mentioned.
How much slip will the TCM allow in VDC R I wonder? If launching in a straight line, it should hopefully allow a useful amount before cutting in.
